Monday night, I attended the farewell Mass for Bishop William Friend of the Diocese of Shreveport. It struck me that many of the folks we all grew up looking to for leadership and guidance are getting to that age where they retire from work (or even from life).
I went to the event just as a sheep, to acknowledge this man who has led my church. But I found myself taking notes (you can take the girl out of the newsroom....) just to remember some of his sermon. I would encourage y'all to find these people who have guided you in some way and remember what they have to say.
